Children’s Sabbath 2013

The Children’s Sabbath – whether celebrated the weekend of October 12th or 18th – “is a weekend that aims to unite religious congregations of all faiths across the nation in shared concern for children and common commitment to improving their lives and working for justice on their behalf.” As United Methodists, our roots rest in the care for those who are vulnerable, especially children. During this important weekend we join with other denominations and religions to bring to light the plight of children in a “bigger and more powerful and more inspiring way than the efforts of any one congregation” or denomination can accomplish on its own.
